    Thundersnow...way cool

    We are having one of those rare snow events here in Alabama. It started sleeting around 3:00 pm and then switched over to snow. We have about 6 inches so far. But the coolest thing happened a couple of hours ago. We had thundersnow. Thunder and lightening with the snow. WOW!!! Have any of you guys ever been in one of these storms?


    And yes, the whole state has been shut down since about 3:30 pm Sunday.

    Shit, I just checked the doppler. That storm front you've got in Bama is headed straight for me here in NC. It will be here in two hours.

    It is suppose to continue snowing/sleeting/freezing rain here until mid afternoon Monday. And we aren't looking to get temps out of the 30s until maybe Friday. Mr. Nina is down in Birmingham with his dad. Said the power just went out at the hospital. It's still on here at th house.

    It is a BIG storm system. I hope you get the thundersnow too.

    Yeah, weather map shows it stretched east from Arkansas west all the way to the Carolina coast, and from the gulf north to Kentucky. Massive. Good thing I've got the day off tomorrow.

    I wish. I work for the city and my facility is considered an emergency shelter. Don't know the fuk why. It was built by the same company that built this:

    They've since gone out of business.

    seen it before, though not very often

    We have 3 to 5 inches coming tomorrow and i'm not thrilled about it. Life is hard enough as it is, not wanting to add all that slop into the mix

    That storm front got up to the NC border and then just stalled. It's been sitting in the same place since I went to bed last night. Freaky shit.

    We ended up with about 6 inches of snow and a layer of ice under that. Most businesses will be closed again tomorrow. The high toady was 33 which didn't melt a lot and anything that did melt will just refreeze tonight. We don't get enough snow to be able to handle it.

    It's funny how the snow kinda muffles the sound of the thunder.

    Went to school in Duluth, Minnesota. Had a "Thunderblizzard" four winters ago. Over two feet of snow and thunder and lightning. Craziest thing I've ever seen.

    Yeah, our snow has an ice layer at the bottom and the top. Snow isn't suppose to crunch when you walk on it. That makes it hard to make snow cream.

    We didn't get thundersnow but we got snow and then ice on top of it. Did some nice runs with a makeshift sled down the hill.

    Well I didn't get any of that (although that would have been cool) but I have a couple from today. Now I know that by you Yankees snow standard this isn't a lot but it is to us down south.



    And doesn't Droopy look sad with his belly dragging in the snow?
